Children’s concert series presents classical music group Decoda

On Saturday, May 30, at 2 p.m., Greenwich Library’s Ashforth Children’s Concert Series and Curiosity Concerts will present the chamber ensemble Decoda. The performance, called “101 Ways to Transform a Tune,” is based on Johannes Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet in B Minor, Op. 115. This special classical music event for children will be held in the Cole Auditorium.

During an engaging one hour concert, this dynamic chamber ensemble will explore musical transformations through one of Johannes Brahms’ masterpieces. Decoda is all about interactivity, so come prepared to move, sing and step into the composer’s shoes on this musical journey.

The concert is suitable for adults and children of any age who are able to enjoy an hour of music. Tickets are required and can be reserved at no charge at Please reserve only if you are certain to attend as the concerts are often oversubscribed.

Decoda is a chamber ensemble comprised of virtuoso musicians, entrepreneurs, and passionate advocates of the arts. Based in New York City, the group creates innovative performances and engaging projects with partners around the world. The artists first collaborated with one another in the renowned Ensemble ACJW fellowship program, created by Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, and they now extend that relationship as an Affiliate Ensemble of Carnegie Hall.

The Ashforth Concert Series is designed to introduce children to classical music performance. The concert is open to the public at no charge through the support of Georgie and Henry A. Ashforth.

Curiosity Concerts, a project of the Greenwich Arts Council, is a new series of classical music concerts for families with children. The concerts are performed by professional national and local musicians. For more information visit
